Academic Year/Summer

Appeal and all required documentation submitted no later than 30 days before the last day of the semester. Process: Appeals are reviewed by a committee and are subject to federal guidelines. If approved, changes are submitted to the U.S. Department of Education (FAFSA) and financial aid will be adjusted once approved. We cannot make adjustments without documentation and if the student makes these adjustments to the FAFSA on their own those changes will be rejected or trigger additional verification, which could result in the loss of existing eligibility for aid. Appeals may be closed without a ruling if the requested changes would not affect the student’s financial aid. Required forms can be found online at www.ius.edu/financialaid.
